Water is a vital resource for the life of all living beings, but many people pollute it. Poor cleaning practices and inadequate purification methods have negative consequences, such as diarrhea, something that mainly affects children, to the point that they can cause death. Within a few years, half the population may live in areas with limited water since water pollution is on the rise, and diseases as well. Our team believes that it is important to adopt measures, such as reducing the use of plastic, improving and increasing the places to purify the water, and avoiding the use of chemicals.
